Ceres Private Equity makes early and growth-stage investments in smaller middle market operating companies in the North American Food and Agriculture sector. Food and Agriculture is an $800 billion sector representing nearly 5% of the U.S. economy and over 9% of U.S. employment, yet it has been under invested for years. As one of only a small number of Agriculture-focused investment managers, Ceres sees exciting investment opportunities across the sector which are either proprietary or not widely shopped.
